Osteoarthritis images

Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis images


Avatar m tn , injury, other disease, obesity), it is referred to as secondary osteoarthritis of the spine. If osteoarthritis in your case is due to some other medical condition then treating that would eliminate arthritis in the spine. Symptoms usually are pain, stiffness and reduced flexibility. Diagnosis is made with the help of history, evaluation of symptoms, x-rays, blood tests and MRI’s.
Avatar m tn Well, it would be difficult to comment on the situation without knowing the relevant clinical details/ detailed clinical evaluation or having a look at the radiological images. Tibial osteotomy may further increase the chances of degeneration in the situation, though a symptomatic relief may be appreciated. It would be best to discuss the situation and the appropriate management plan in detail with your treating orthopedician. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Avatar n tn Arthritis can occur due to many reasons like infection, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, psoriasis, trauma, osteoarthritis etc. More often X-ray images of the affected joint may reveal a narrowing space with in the joint, which indicates that the cartilage is breaking down. An X-ray may also show bone spurs around a joint. Depending upon the cause, there can be depositions, resorption of bone material etc. All the best.
Avatar f tn You do have the starting stages of osteoarthritis (i.e., mild facet degeneration). This can cause significant pain especially as the osteoarthritis worsens over time. There are several different types of spinal injections that can help with the pain caused by osteoarthritis and I would encourage you to explore treatment options with your physician. Very minimal and minimal could be terms defined by the amount of bulge present usually measured in mm.
Avatar n tn Images were acquired in the sagittal and transaxial planes. Sagitall T2-weighted images were also obtained in flexion and extension. FINDINGS: There is mild discogenic disease spondylosis and diffuse posterior bulges from C2-3-C4-5. There is kyphotic angulation at C4-5. At C5-6 is severe discogenic disease spondylosis and diffuse posterior bulge and severe endplate osteitis secondary to chronic discovertebral trauma.
Avatar f tn Im going to see a pain doctor for my spinal stnosis,herniated disc and osteoarthritis and I was just wondering if anyone knew how they treat that kind of pain? I am currently taking percocet 10/325 and naproxin 500mg for pain however the pain is getting worse and am hoping for something that will give me longer lasting pain relief. I just dont want them to take my percs away cause thats the only thing that helps me get through the pain. Any info would help. Thanks.
Avatar f tn I have had long time knee issues and have had 3 surgeries involving medial meniscus tear, cartilage damage and bone chips. 1994 was my last one. Osteoarthritis was diagnosed in 1994 (I'm 47 and vey active) New MRI results: 1.posterior defect in root of medial meniscus 2. interstitial tear in ACL 3. bone marrow abnormality at medial femoral condyle 4. mild cartilage deficit lateral femoral condyle All my pain is posterior lateral with limited flexion. What the heck is going on?
Avatar m tn The MRI scan results shows like There are multiple foci of altered marrow signal which shows hypointense signal on T1 weighted images and hyperintense signal in T2 weighted images and STIR images noted involving C7,T4,T7,T9,T10,L1,L3,L5,S1 vertebrae .There is associated pedicle involment at T4(Right),T7(Right),T10(Bilateral),L3(Right),L5(Left).There is compression collapse of T7 vertebral body.Disc desiccation involving L5/S1 disc.Posterior annular tear at L5/S1 disc.
221768 tn?1189759422 There is minimal reversal of cervical lodosis. Axial images reveal mild facet and unconvertebral osteoarthtitis with mild-moderate bilateral foraminal narrowing at C4-C5 and diffuse disc bulge; there is mild spinal canal narrowing. There is mild left-sided foraminal narrowing at C7-T1. Mild spondylosis is seen.
Avatar f tn T1, STIR and T2 - weighted sagittal, T! and T2 weighted axial images of the lumbosacral spine are obtained. Findings: The lumbar vertebra appear normal in height, alignment and signal characteristics. T11-T12 Level: Degenerative Disc disease and a 0.4 cm posterior disc protrusion and mild facet joint osteoarthritis resulting in mild spinal stenosis. There is no significant nerve root foraminal stenosis. T12-L1 and L1-L2 Level: Minimal posterior disc bulges.
Avatar f tn Mild multilevel lower lumbar spondylosis and lower lumbar facet osteoarthritis as detailed below. No canal or foraminal stenosis. No disc herniation or nerve root impingement. Inflammatory changes in the right L4-5 facet joint. Findings: Vertebral body heights, alignment, and bone marrow signal is preserved. Mild diffuse disc desiccation with loss of the normal intrinsic T2 signal. Mild multilevel disc height loss L2-L5. The conus terminates at a normal level.
Avatar f tn I had a shoulder decompression and rotator cuff tear repair about 5 years ago, A few months ago I had a ultrasound which showed a full thickness tear, bursitis and osteoarthritis, went to see a ortho surgeon who then got me to have a MRI scan. The scan showed no tear but alot of fluid in the shoulder, he called it a angry shoulder? Is it possible for a MRI to be wrong? If not what is with the fluid in the shoulder? can someone please help.
Avatar f tn You have heard the saying, doctors differ patients die. bone spurs and osteoarthritis dont go away without treatment, osteoarthritis is a degenerative illness....... It sounds like they are unsure about just what is going on with you.
Avatar f tn Ok, spondylosis is a term referring to common degenerative osteoarthritis of the joints of the spine. A lot of people develop it as they age. Water and fluid will present as intensities on the T2 weighted images. In some situations, this can be due to some degenerative changes in that area of the spine, however, this can be non-specific and it is best that these findings be correlated with your present symptoms if any. In other words in might be nothing.
Avatar n tn - Straightening of cervical spine noted in sagittal images - Degenerative cervical spondylotic changes represented by marginal osteophytosis associated with ventral end plate degenerative changes - At CV5/6 disc level, there is evidence of posterior disc protrusion seen indenting the ventral aspects of thecal sac more inclined to left side compromised the nerve root at left side.
Avatar n tn Googled 'images' and saw 'cherry nevus' but this is something typical of getting older, and I've had these since teens. Doesn't look like images of psoriasis I saw on web. I also have painful osteoarthritis in hips, knees, back and shoulder despite being young. If this is psoriasis I know it is connected to arthritis as I had a friend with both conditions. I also have endometriosis. I was blood tested for rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus but results were normal.
1475492 tn?1332887767 ) As a person with lots of osteoarthritis (not auto-immune related rheumatoid arthritis) I have heard a lot of reporting of osteophytes on the parts of joints where joints rub together. It's the reason I ended up turning my natural knee in for an artificial replacement. I think bone marrow signal abnormalities are about as non-specific as lesions.
Avatar f tn 2 cm short axis ossified intra-articular body centered along the inner aspect of the lateral femoral ondyle at the posterior intercondylar notch, posterior of the cruciate ligaments (axial images 15; coronal images 7). Additional intra-articular body, slightly smaller, centered along the anteromedial femoral condyle (axial images 14; coronal images 16). Joint effusion with scattered foci of synovial proliferation.
Avatar f tn I also been dx with asthma, allergies, osteoarthritis (lower lumbar),ddd (lower lumbar) and mild to moderate spinal stenosis in lower lumbar S1 thru L3 and Gerd. I'm now 41 yrs old and it seems like I've had a lot of inflamation issues. What will an endocrinologist do? And should I be scared? My vision has been a little more blurry lately yet the eye doctor says its almost 20/20 and looks good.
233501 tn?1226478134 The pain was intermittent in the early years and usually followed vigorous exercise. I was diagnosed with the early stages of osteoarthritis in my hips and was told that I should minimize high-impact sports, lose weight and wait until the pain became intolerable then seek a Hip Replacement Surgery. In early 2005 the pain in my left hip became substantially more acute, to the point that I was walking with a limp at all times, and experiencing almost constant pain.
Avatar m tn Based on how I am understanding my test results most of my pain is from hip impingement, not necessarily osteoarthritis. I am uncomfortable sitting for long periods, and recently (last month or so) riding my bike has become occasionally painful both during and after the ride. I have been prescribed meloxicam 15mg daily. I have been taking it for about a week without much relief.
Avatar f tn MRI report T1, T2 and gradient echo sagittal and gradient echo axial images of the cervical spine were obtained. No previous studies are available for comparison. No significant abnormalities identified of the craniocervical junction, C1-2,or C2-3. At C3-4 there is no significant abnormality of the intervertebral disk. There are hypertrophic degenerative changes of the facets at this level on the left resulting in severe left-sided foraminal stenosis.
562597 tn?1254402341 Regarding your MRI report, it is not very common to have multiple areas of degeneration and herniated discs at 38 years of age, unless there is an underlying cause like arthritis, or osteoarthritis. However it is very important to know the severity of the damage, and this sometimes is under or overestimated in the reports.
Avatar n tn Sagittal T1-weighted and T2-weighted and axial T2 and T1 weighted images of the cervical spine were obtained without intravenous contrast. Following intravenous administration of gadolinium, axial and sagittal T1-weighted images with fat saturation were also obtained. Contrast: 9.0mL Gadavist Findings: The cervical vertebrae are normally aligned. There is diffuse desiccation of discs from C2 down to C7 without disc height narrowing.
1784705 tn?1314856237 While I am not trying only to comfort you but also trying to give you certain facts.While your MRI have shown syrinx they could well be artifacts. Syrinx-like artifacts on MR images of the spinal cord.
Avatar f tn So he diagnosed me with osteoarthritis, gave me 6 day round of steriods and pain meds. It was a short term fix. Several months later pain returned and several more months later my stubborn butt went back to PCP. This time he referred me to an orthopedist. They did another 6 day round of steroid, more pain meds, and had me go through physical therapy. Again, short-term fix. So, per orthopedist request, I went back in mid Sept. to have an MRI of the cervical spine.
Avatar m tn Increased sclerosis and subcortical cyst formation and the medial femoral condyle may be degenerative or may represent an area of SONK, similar exam from April 12, 2010. 2. Moderate tricompartmental osteoarthritis, mildly progressed. 3. Chondrocalcinosis. 4. Atherosclerosis. Left knee. 1. Mild tricompartmental osteoarthritis, similar to the prior study. 2. Chondrocalcinosis. 3. Atherosclerosis.
901368 tn?1242062859 PULSE SEQUENCE: Sagittal T1 and fast spin echo T2 weighted images were obtained in addition to axial T2* images through the cervical spine. Following contrast administration , sagittal and axial T1 weighted imaging was performed. FINDINGS: This is an abnormal examination. The cervical canal is small on a developmental basis. Findings consistent with severe congenital spinal stenosis. This is secondary to shortened pedicals. This is apparent from the C3-4 level caudad to the C6-7 level.
Avatar f tn I had taken some motrin before bed, but clearly it didn't help. I have cervical stenosis of C-2-8, osteoarthritis....the headache is brutal. I also have hypertension, but this doesn't feel like a hypertension headache....the weather is bad today, windy and is going to rain. I notice my face hurts in rainy weather for some reason. Thanks.
Avatar m tn Multiplanar, multi-weighted images of the right shoulder were obtained without IV or intra-articular contrast. FINDINGS: ROTATOR CUFF: Marked tendinosis along the distal cuff. No full or partial thickness tear is identified. ROTATOR INTERVAL: The CA ligament is visualized and appears intact. The biceps tendon appears intact and projects in a satisfactory position. AC JOINT: Mild degenerative changes with prominent bone marrow and capsular edema.
